Important Update High Holidays 2018

The Havurah religious practice committee is interviewing rabbis to conduct our high holiday services this fall.  Costs for a rabbi to guide us on this enterprise fall into the $4,000-$5,000 range.

Please commit to a contribution of $100-$300 per household to enable the Havurah to continue this tradition for the Jewish community of Vashon Island.
